He's our little teddy bear who quietly rules the roost not by force, only by observing. He keeps an eye on all that is around him.
He's a prime example that rescue really does work.
We adopted him at the young age of 10. He is pushing 15 now and still healthy as ever. When Shane came home to us he was grossly overweight, petrified of men, and bit everyone who came near him. A little patience, a little training, lots of love and TLC turned this dog around. It took about a year or so, but, he's in a very happy, secure place.
He makes no bones about being the life of the party now. Everyone needs to give him a hello and a hiny scratch. Once he's become aquainted with everyone, he goes back to just laying nearby and observing. Afterall, that's his job. Ruling the roost. And a grand job he does.
